"Five years into wedded bliss, I confessed to Kim that I no longer loved her. We were stuck in a destructive relationship pattern we now refer to as the fierce woman/fearful man cycle, and I had lost all hope for a peaceful marriage…" LeRoy Wagner
What if Im laid-back and my wife is… not?
How can I lead when I feel emasculated?
Im not sure I love my wife anymore. What happened?
If you find yourself asking questions like these, LeRoy can relate. In Men Who Love Fierce Women, he is gut-honest about his failures and frustrations as a husband, the realizations that saved his marriage,* and the requirements God places on every husband, laid-back or not. With their insights combined, Kim and LeRoy equip men to rise up, handle conflict, love their wife, and lead their marriage, regardless of who has the stronger personality.
Includes reflection questions at the end of every chapter, plus an appendix for addressing conflict.
*Kim and LeRoys interview on Focus on the Family, in which they discuss their marriage and Kims book Fierce Women, aired twice and was voted the #1 segment of 2015, prompting the publication of this book.

QuietMomGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great for men. Women, get the original Fierce Women book not this one!December 1, 2016QuietMomGender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0My rating: 4 stars
Its very hard for me to review a book, as a woman, thats specifically written for men. Naturally my tendency is to read it and think of how my husband should be reading it, etc. Not good. And though Ive not read the first book by Mrs. Wagner, Fierce Women, my understanding is that much of the information is similar but with the bent toward the man instead of the woman.
So with that in mind, I can recommend this book. For men. Wives dont run out and get it for your husbands, get Fierce Women instead and read it for what you can learn, glean and be convicted on yourself. Then, if/when the conviction comes, you can quietly and gently tell your husband that the book is what helped to change you and suggest that he might enjoy this book himself.
So, in short, recommended with the disclaimer that I recommend it to men only.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts are my own after reading the book.
Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding!September 29, 2016Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Its a marriage book unlike any other. Its specifically for the scenario of a strong women, so strong they use the word fierce, and a more naturally easy-going guy. Written by a couple, Leroy and Kimberly Wagner, who fits this description perfectly, who made all the mistakes, learned from them, and by Gods grace triumphed in Christian marriage. It must resonate dramatically in our day as its impetus was their discussion of what they learned being the #1 segment of 2015 on Focus on the Family.
The book barely touches on how we may have such an increase in this type of marriage situation, things like the gender confusion of our day, and just focuses instead on what two people who love the Lord must understand. This book is geared toward the men, how they have failed even if she is too strong, and how Servant Leadership can be brought to bear to get the Christian marriage we sincerely want.
One of the biggest failures a man in this type marriage can do is be so passive he checks out. It actually leads to making her more fierce and he carries some blame. The key is fixing your part, taking your responsibilities and doing it for Jesus sake if you cant push through to do it for her.
The book is amazing. I assure you it isnt trite platitudes as some marriage books tend to be, but real substance that you can get your heart and mind around. I give it the highest possible rating.
